Man Punches McDonald's Sign: Fails to Assuage Road Rage, Succeeds in Getting Arrested

The customers at a Pasadena McDonald's are sadly going unthanked as they exit the drive-through lane these days. The sign that so sincerely expressed gratification for their patronage has been punched out.

Earlier this week, a man decided to take out his annoyance at an alleged road-rage incident by going after the sign, which is the expert-approved method of dealing with frustration.

The McDonald's manager told cops, the Pasadena Citizen says, that he asked the puncher for an explanation of why he was doing what he was doing.

The suspect told the manager that he had been involved in a road rage incident near the exit sign in which he claimed another vehicle nearly caused an accident. The other vehicle had left the scene.

The reportee told police that he returned to his vehicle to discover he was locked out at which time he became enraged and struck the sign.

Well, that does sound pretty frustrating, if funny.

The man, who was not named, allegedly told the manager, "I hit the sign, go ahead, arrest me!"

Police obliged after the manager told them he wanted to press charges.
